Hello, I’m a new Huel user. I’m a 37 year old fitness freak and an avid runner, I’m very healthy and active.
I decided to try Huel as a quick pre-workout, post-workout etc. option and so far it’s been good.
However, many times, after downing 4 scoops of either the Vanilla or Unflavored , shortly afterward I feel somewhat “jangly” or revved up, mildly anxious and jittery. Even after consuming very little caffeine.
I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt, in that I got my first Huel shipment just as I was coming down with a bad cold, which makes me somewhat nervy and moody anyway but still, I’m not sure. Maybe I’m now associating the Huel with an unrelated cold that put my nerves on edge and now I’m “placebo-ing” myself into Huel= Anxiety, I don’t know. I drank 4 scoops at 11am, before my workout, felt kind of nerv-y all day…drank 4 more scoops tonite at 10pm, it’s now 1 am and I feel OK so I don’t know what’s going on.
I have one more shipment of 4 bags of Unflavored coming late this month, I will contine to use it, this is the final “test” for me. If I’m still getting that jangly feeling after another few weeks of use, I may have to part company with Huel.
It would help if any of the Huel Nutritionists could chime in and break down any ingredients that may cause any nervous system “ramping up”, maybe I’m sensitive to an ingredient, or just give me some reassurance that maybe it’s all in my head.
